Interdisciplinary Approach to Career Development through a Program of Occupational Education.
Russellville City School System, AL.
The document consists of teaching outlines which one school district's teachers developed and used in the early stages of an exemplary program to provide students with occupational information and to guide and instruct them in career development. The first 50 pages contain general materials: an activity calendar, a guide to exemplary programs, and a resource guide. Most of the document is comprised of instructional unit outlines: several for grade levels 4-6 (each planned to span six weeks); 36 lessons for grades 7and 8; 36 lessons for ninth grade vocational education courses (each planned to span one week); additional ninth grade materials for integrating occupational information into academic subjects; and two interdisciplinary units for grades 10-12, one of six weeks' duration (Personal and Family Relationships), and one of three weeks' duration (Legal Aspects of Daily Life). Compensatory units, without grade level, in mathematics and communications are offered for vocational education students. Units include a topic outline, teaching/learning activities, and learning resources. The final section of the document concerns program evaluation; a progress report and the review team's evaluation instrument with findings are included. (AJ)
